Jack: We are about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. If I can just find this one thing. We’re gonna get on a very special jet, and it’s gonna have games and your — your favorite snacks and movies and cartoons for us to watch, and it’s just gonna be us. You and me. And best of all, it’s an overnight flight, so we’ll fall asleep on the plane, and when we wake up, who are we gonna see in italy?
Jack: No, no, I’m sorry. No, mommy won’t be there, but we’ll — we’ll see her soon. But you know who will be there is daddy kyle. Won’t that be fun? Oh, and summer found this great gelato place. You know gelato? It’s kind of like — it’s like ice cream, only maybe a little bit better. You are in for the time of your life. And best of all, you’re gonna do it with your daddy, and that makes me very happy.
Harrison: Can I bring him, too?
Jack: Thank you for reminding me what I was trying to find. I wanted to make sure zippy came with us and it would all go smoothly, so… oh, here it is. I got zippy a passport. Yeah, that’s his passport, and he can go wherever you go. What do you think? You ready for our big adventure together?
Chloe: Hey. I got your message. What’s up?
Adam: Uh, I was just reading the memo that you sent.
Chloe: And you agree with everything in it?
Adam: The memo was fine, but you copied chelsea on it.
Chloe: Well, yeah, she’s a part of my team.
Adam: She’s not officially on board.
Chloe: That doesn’t mean it’s not a done deal. It was a big part of your pitch when you offered me this job, the opportunity for my friend to have a safe place to land. Well, semi-safe.
Chloe: Well, you’re still here.
Adam: You know, it is really nice in an ever-changing world to have a constant to count on, like your innate distrust of me.
Chloe: It’s not innate. It’s learned, after years of experience.
Adam: Fine. Where’s your new addition to the team, the fashion superstar?
Chloe: Sally, yeah, she’ll be here in a minute. Seemed like you guys were really hitting it off earlier at crimson lights.
Adam: You know, it is helpful to get to know the people who work for you. She seems smart. I like her, but I had an interesting conversation with phyllis about her the other night. She’s not a fan.
Chloe: Oh, really? Sounds like a badge of honor to me.
Sally: The security in this hotel is terrible.
Sally: I would like to report a robbery.
Sally: What is this? I’m telling you I was robbed in your hotel.
Phyllis: Are you sure it was a robbery?
Sally: Well, someone broke into my room and took everything I owned.
Phyllis: Mm, that’s not necessarily “theft.”
Sally: Okay, so then what else would it be? My possessions were stolen.
Phyllis: Okay. You know, like those suitcases right here, I mean, if somebody were to take off with those,
that would be a robbery.
Sally: Wait, my suitcases.
Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Isn’t it clear to you? You’re being evicted.
Phyllis: I’m throwing you out on your california butt. My employees — my lovely employees — packed your bags for you. You need to leave as soon as possible.
Lauren: Uh, michael’s not here, but he is definitely on his way.
Gloria: Good. And I do so appreciate you taking me out like this.
Lauren: Oh, well, I love to take my assistants out a few times a year because it’s really important to take stock, you know, see what’s working, what needs improvement without the distraction of the office.
Gloria: And that is exactly the smart approach I’ve come to expect from you. You are an excellent manager, and I’m always looking for leadership tips.
Lauren: You are? Why?
Gloria: Oh, I love this champagne. It’s the good stuff. In fact, we should get a bottle.
Lauren: This is a work lunch.
Gloria: Oh, come on, we deserve to let our hair down a little bit. And besides, you are going to need that champagne for a toast.
Lauren: [ Chuckles ] I am?
Lauren: I don’t understand. What am I toasting to?
Gloria: You are going to wish me luck. Lauren, this is my last day as your assistant.
Rey: So you don’t think ian ward could be behind mariah’s disappearance?
Michael: The man’s definitely a sociopath, but he is currently incarcerated in a maximum-security prison where his communication with the outside world is strictly monitored. How’s sharon holding up?
Rey: She’s a wreck. She just wants answers, michael.
Michael: Listen, I just keep coming back to the idea that there’s nothing actually wrong.
Rey: What do you mean?
Michael: Mariah, maybe she just needed to take some time for herself before the baby comes. I mean, she got swept up in this idea of helping abby, and it just became overwhelming. You know, she needed a break.
Rey: Yeah, I kept thinking the same thing for a while, but there are too many irregularities. Think about it — she didn’t pack, encryption on her phone. Now, for me, the tipping point was that she didn’t use her credit cards once or make a single cellphone call since she’s been gone. Mariah is in trouble, and she needs our help. Tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?
Michael: I assume you’ve checked the police database for anybody who has kidnapping in their record. I mean, ian ward’s a great hunch, but it could be somebody who has absolutely no connection with mariah.
Rey: It seems unlikely she would have been randomly targeted by a stranger, michael.
Michael: No, there could be someone who has it in fro chance, is aware of what she’s doing for him and abby, saw an opportunity.
Rey: Well, that is a direction to look into.
Michael: Or someone who just wants to hurt mariah’s mother, has an axe to grind with sharon.
Rey: There is one person who comes to mind.
Chloe: Okay, well, I actually have to get a few things ready before sally arrives. Are we good?
Adam: Are we ever totally good?
Chloe: No. But I just want to make sure it’s not a problem if I’m keeping chelsea on my contact list.
Adam: You’re sending official company communications to someone who does not work here.
Chloe: But she will. And keeping her in the loop will only make her excited about the idea of coming aboard.
Adam: And I think that’s great, but until she is actually on payroll, nothing confidential or proprietary in those e-mails.
Chloe: So do you just, like, go home and practice sounding reasonable? Because I am just waiting for you to crack and reveal your true self. A part of me is thinking maybe i should just move my desk in here so I don’t miss it when it happens.
Adam: You know, maybe this is my true self, and all those years I was acting like a jerk, it was for your benefit. Well, this was a lot of fun. Let’s never do it again.
Chloe: [ Scoffs ]
Sally: I can’t believe you had all of your employees go into my room, pack up everything I own, and plop it right down here in the lobby.
Phyllis: Yes. Yes, I diD. Um, I kicked you out before. This shouldn’t be a shock. I mean, you didn’t listen to me then. I foolishly let it slide. I’m kicking you out now.
Sally: You can’t do this, phyllis.
Phyllis: Oh, I think i already did. Management reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who bugs the hell out of me. Now, I suggest you go up to your room and you make sure that my employees got everything. You have about five minutes left on that key card.
Jack: Is there a problem?
Phyllis: Not anymore. To be a thriver
Michael: Oh. What did I miss?
Lauren: Not really sure. I think she’s quitting.
Michael: You begged lauren for that job.
Gloria: I know, and I am so grateful you can’t imagine. I needed a position until something better came along.
Michael: Oh, oh, I see. You have something else lined up.
Gloria: Of course.
Lauren: So what will you do?
Gloria: Oh, come on, you should know, lauren. Don’t get coy with me.
Michael: Gloria, I’m operating in the dark here. What is this new opportunity?
Gloria: Sally spectra was given the boot. Jcv is without a leader.
Gloria: Jcv needs a firm hand at the wheel, needs inspired leadership, needs a fresh ideas, needs…
Gloria: Mm-hmm. I knew you’d agree with me.
Michael: [ Laughs ] You can’t be serious.
Sally: There, I am no longer a resident of this over-priced, thin-walled dump. Jack. I ask you, is there anyone less suited for the hospitality business than her?
Jack: Can you really blame phyllis?
Sally: I can and I do. We had a business arrangement. I paid her weekly, and she gave me a place to stay.
Jack: I think you know this is about more than a hotel room.
Sally: She has had it in for me since the second I came to town.
Jack: This could have been so different. You could have worked with your own merits to get to the top. Instead, you got greedy.
Sally: Greedy? Me?
Jack: Yes, and it cost summer and kyle.
Sally: Wait, what exactly did it cost summer? She got a dream job because of me.
Jack: You really don’t get this, do you?
Sally: What is it that I’m supposed to get?
Jack: Let me put it this way. If you mess with another member of my family, I will not be so calm and forgiving next time.
Sally: I can’t believe that you think you’re being forgiving when you’re actually just being cruel. We could have had something really special, jack, until she torpedoed our relationship. She was jealous of what we had, and she wanted to control you. Now she’s getting exactly what she wanted. I will never forget what you did.
Phyllis: Do you need someone to help you with those bags?
Sally: No, absolutely not. I got it myself. Thank you. I am really sorry that things didn’t work out for us, jack. I mean that.
Phyllis: Should I call a bellman?
Sally: No, I got it. Thank you. I’ve got moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Gloria: [ Chuckles ] You are so narrow-minded, michael. Both of you. You don’t think I can run a fashion-forward company like jcv.
Michael: Why would lauren hand over a plum job like that to you?
Lauren: You know, that’s quite a jump — from my assistant to running a major fashion division.
Gloria: Oh, but not such a jump for your former assistant, sally spectra.
Lauren: Okay, she had already been made an executive before i gave her that opportunity. Plus, she had a lot of recent fashion experience in la.
Gloria: Oh, my, what a coincidence. I have a lot of experience, too. Fashion consultant at jabot, worked with chloe and chelsea on their line a few years ago. Ah, and once upon a time, an “extreme catwalk” judge.
Michael: [ Chuckles ] “Extreme catwalk” judge. Thank you, fashion maven. We’re all very impressed, but there’s the other little matter of actually running a business.
Gloria: I’ve run several businesses, michael — successfully, mind you.
Michael: Like what? Glo-worm?
Gloria: A coveted, loved restaurant.
Michael: It went up in flames.
Gloria: Not my fault.
Lauren: You know, I just do not think that this is a — a —
Gloria: Before you finish your sentence, please hear me out. I am talented, I am hard-working, I am creative, i am a natural. Oh, yes, and best of all, i won’t spend all of my time plotting behind your back. Come on, lauren, please give me the job. You know I can do it. And I might say you could do worse. But you already have.
Phyllis: As fun as that was, seeing her, you know, try to get out of here, it didn’t change anything. I mean, my daughter is in italy, and she is not coming back. All that time I wasted trying to expose tara and sally for my daughter —
Jack: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, don’t — don’t say it was a waste. It wasn’T. I know you’re disappointed with the results, but it was important and it was helpful. And as far as summer goes, look, at least now she’s doing what she’s doing out of choice. Be happy that your daughter has opportunities, and like her mother, knows how to make the most of them.
Phyllis: Thank you. You always know what to say to me, and I really, really love you for it. Thank you, jack. You’re right. Uh, I should just be proud of my daughter, and I r– I should respect her power of choice. It’s just hard. It’s just really, really difficult for me. This must be difficult for you, too. Not only did you lose kyle, but you lost harrison, as well.
Jack: Yeah, he’s become a giant part of my life, but you know what? This is not about me. At least I keep telling myself that.
Phyllis: Oh, see, that’s my problem, ’cause it’s always about me, so…
Jack: Look, think of this as a bold, new opportunity for summer and kyle to start a new life together as new parents. And who knows? Maybe they’ll like it so much, they’ll start talking about having a child together.
Phyllis: [ Sighs ] You really like being a grandfather, don’t you?
Jack: I’m telling you, the more grandchildren, the better. I want every holiday in the abbott house to be crowded with grandchildren. Noisy and boisterous, just like it used to be.
Phyllis: That sounds amazing. It does. Doesn’t change the fact that she’s not coming home. That’s all — it’s just really hard. Ugh. I have half a mind to hitch a ride with you to milan.
Jack: We have an extra seat on the jet.
Phyllis: Oh, I can’T. It’s impossible with everything at work, but that’s why i called you over here. I have a little something for her that I’d like you to bring to summer. Can you do that?
Jack: Yeah, what is it?
Phyllis: Well, it’s not completely ready, so I have to stop by later and give it to you.
Jack: I am delighted to be your deliveryman of choice. You saved me from making a major mistake with sally. And I owe you big time.
[ Knock on door ]
Rey: My apologies for not calling earlier. I have some questions for you.
Adam: I assume this is about chelsea?
Rey: No. Mariah copeland. I was wondering the last time you had contact with her.
Adam: Um…mariah. Um…it’s been a while. I mean, she’s barely on my radar. Why?
Rey: She’s been out of town for much longer than expected.
Adam: [ Scoffs ] So someone goes missing, and your first step is to come question me, even though I have no connection to her?
Rey: I didn’t say she’d gone missing.
Adam: Well, that kind of was the implication, wasn’t it?
Rey: And you still haven’t answered the last time you made contact with her.
Adam: Uh, I think it was right after I donated a kidney to faith. And you still haven’t told me why your detective instincts have zeroed in on me, rey. I mean, did you want to search the office?
Rey: No. Of course not. And your overreaction isn’t helping the situation. You know, you could at least pretend to care. This is sharon’s daughter we’re talking about.
Adam: I do care. It still doesn’t explain the logic to why you’re here questioning me.
Rey: Maybe you’re lashing out at sharon for not loving you or maybe mariah’s crossed you one too many times, given how much she hates you.
Adam: I think you’re fishing, pal.
Rey: I’m covering my bases, pal, and I am not gonna apologize for doing my job, no matter how much it irks you.
Adam: Look, you’re grasping at straws, rey. You know, I thought that we were moving into a better direction after you stepped up and went with chelsea to minnesota, but i guess not. You’re still dying to just pin something — anything — on me.
Rey: And the odds are in my favor that one day I will. Lifter gloss from maybelline new york.
“The young and the restless”
Adam: If mariah really is missing, I am sorry to hear it. I sincerely hope nothing bad has happened to her. I also sincerely hope that we’re done here ’cause I have work to do.
Rey: Tell me, how’s chelsea doing? I assume you’ve been contact with her.
Adam: She seems fine. I’ll let her know that you asked about her next time she calls.
Rey: And connor? He’s adjusting to all the changes in his life?
Adam: I do not have time to have casual conversation with you.
Chloe: So how attached are you to next quarter’s budget? Hi, rey.
Adam: I’ll talk to you about the budget later. Detective rosales hasn’t wrapped things up with me yet, despite my best efforts.
Lauren: The issues is that jcv is for a very specific demographic, and I just don’t think your sensibilities would be a match.
Gloria: In other words, I’m not young enough for —
Lauren: No, no, I’m not saying that at all.
Gloria: Of course you’re not. Great way to get yourself sued. Don’t worry, michael, I am not looking for a settlement. I want a job.
Lauren: You have one.
Gloria: I want the opportunity to excel. And as far as your concern that I am not quite perfect for the brand, let me give you the answer to that — inclusivity. Buzzword of the day. All types, all ages. Now, look at the amazing diversity in the marketing of, say, an athletic wear company. That is what I want to implement at jcv.
Lauren: That is in line with my vision.
Gloria: Mm-hmm. And as far as your worries that I am out of touch with what young people are thinking, well, forget that, lauren. That can be learned because young people, that changes every day. I have an idea.
Michael: Oh, god.
Gloria: Give me some time to show you what I know, to show you what I can do. You might just be surprised. Now, this has been an excellent, exciting, productive meeting. Thank you both for talking.
Lauren: What just happened? Did she just accept a job that wasn’t offered again?
Lauren: Oh, I need the bottle.
Chloe: As newman media gets closer to its official launch, we’ll firm up our publishing details.
Sally: Great. So, what happened back there?
Chloe: Oh, at the office?
Sally: With detective rosales.
Chloe: You know, I don’t know why rey was there, but remember what I told you about adam, so basically, every time I see him with a cop, I just assume he’s gonna get arrested, which was clearly not the case. I was just having a knee-jerk reaction, nothing more. And, um, sorry, but it looked like you were dragging your luggage into work earlier. What was that about?
Sally: Yeah, I’m sure that looked a little odd. I apologize. I can assure you that I’m not planning on moving in. I just had to leave my previous residence in a hurry.
Chloe: Previous residence — you mean phyllis’ hotel?
Sally: Yeah. I won’t miss it. Or her. And my next place will be a definite upgrade.
Chloe: It must be hard doing it alone. You’ve had some setbacks — with work, jack, and now your living arrangements. I just want to make sure that you’re not making any plans to leave.
Sally: Leaving never crossed my mind. I already did that when I came here from la, and, yeah, I may not be the most popular person in town right now, but I have just as much right to be here as anyone.
Chloe: Well said. Sounds like you have something to prove.
Sally: To a few people, yeah. I want to make them regret ever doubting me.
Ashland: Alright, captain harrison, let me see that approach. Very nice. Where’s — oh, let’s see the landing. Let’s see — bring it in for the landing right here. Right there for the landing. Bring it in. Oh, great touchdown. Nice work. Nice work. Hey, jack. I hope you don’t mind, mrs. Martinez let me in.
Jack: Not at all. Looks like you two are having some fun.
Ashland: We sure are.
Jack: Hey, is that a new toy?
Ashland: Ah, it sure is. Yeah, I know all about your special trip on the plan to italy tonight.
Jack: How you feeling?
Ashland: Fine, yeah, harrison was just telling me about the plans to get on the plane tonight and go see kyle and something about pizza.
Jack: Yeah, there was something about pizza, wasn’t there?
Ashland: So proud of my little man. He’s gonna go off and explore the world, aren’t you?
Jack: He’s gonna have the time of his life.
Ashland: Hey, listen, I want you to promise me something. I want you to make a lot of video calls with me back and forth so I can find out what you’re doing and keep in touch with you a lot. And I want you to promise me one more thing, okay? Daddy kyle’s in charge, and i want you to listen to him. And I want you to be on your best behavior with him. Promise me that? Okay? ‘Cause kyle loves you very much, and I know you’re gonna be in good hands and have a ton of fun with he and summer. Summer can’t wait to see you. She loves you, too. She can’t wait to see all the things that you are gonna do together and have bedtime stories.
Jack: Hey, harrison. Would you take that toy to the sun room? Your backpack’s in there, and we don’t want to forget it, okay? Good man. Thanks, buddy. Hey. You really okay?
Ashland: You know, it’s really not something I care to admit, jack, but no, I’m not okay. This is the way it has to be, but that doesn’t make it any easier. When I get a migraine, I shut out the world.
Gloria: Oh, my, my, my, my.
Chloe: Oh, gloria.
Gloria: Oh, sally. I am so sorry I didn’t get a chance to see you or wish you luck before you left jcv, but i see you landed on your feet after the unfortunate facts of your departure.
Sally: You can say “fired.” It’s okay, ’cause that’s what happened, whether or not it was justified.
Gloria: Mm, fired, hmm. You know, but I got a chance to see you, and I was so impressed. It was like watching a pro athlete at the top of her game.
Sally: That’s very nice of you to say, gloria.
Chloe: Maybe too nice.
Gloria: One of the things that really impressed me was how you stayed in tune with the young demographic.
Sally: Yeah, I mean, that’s a big part of the job.
Gloria: Oh, absolutely. So who do you follow on social media and what do you read? Where do you get this freakish talent of knowing what young people want?
Sally: Well, you know, i think it helps to be one of the young people.
Gloria: [ Chuckles ]
Chloe: Uh, gloria, really great seeing you, but we’ve actually got to get back to work. But I’ll see you this weekend for brunch, and we really got to go.
Gloria: Oh, if you must. So long, so long.
Sally: Wow. I mean, that was really sweet of gloria to wish me well. She did not have to do that.
Chloe: No, she didn’T. That’s the suspicious part.
Sally: What do you mean?
Chloe: Well, that’s the thing about gloria. That was not just her being nice. There was an agenda.
Jack: That was quite a performance just now with harrison. You could’ve handled this so differently, and I want you to know I admire your approach.
Ashland: You sound surprised, jack.
Jack: Well, given your reputation…
Ashland: No, I understand. I’m rash, self-serving, impetuous, sometimes I’m just downright mean. But I love that boy. And I’ll always choose to do what is the best for him.
Jack: I want you to know, you and I have that in common.
Ashland: You know, he’s your grandson, but he’s my boy. You know, blood matters. But it’s not everything. And love is — love is a powerful force. And sometimes, you know, when you love someone, you got to do the difficult thing, like step back and let them go.
Jack: I want you to know, there is room in the plane if you’d like to come with us. Really, you could take a little more time with your goodbye.
Ashland: Well, because this could be my last goodbye if the treatment fails.
Jack: I wasn’t saying that.
Ashland: God love you, jack. I appreciate the hell out of that offer, I truly do, it’s — it’s so bloody generous and gracious of you. But that flight from new york really wiped me out, and I can’t imagine what a flight back and forth to europe would do to me.
Jack: I understand that.
Ashland: You know, I think a clean break is probably best. I’ll say my goodbyes here. And you guys will be off to italy, and that’ll be that.
Jack: You’ll see him again. This is not the last time you’ll see harrison. I firmly believe that. I said earlier that I admire you. I meant that. I’d like to think if I was facing a life what you’ve been facing, that I would handle it with the same dignity and grace and courage that you have.
Ashland: Thank you, jack. Now, uh, let me go say goodbye to my boy.
Jack: [ Exhales sharply ] Air wick
Lauren: What do you think gloria is doing?
Michael: We just have to hope that she’s not at this very moment attempting to enroll in a high school so she can better relate to young people’s fashion needs.
Lauren: Just when I think she can’t surprise me anymore, she does.
Michael: It’s a gift of sorts.
Lauren: I mean, she is entertaining.
[ Chuckles ] I’ll give her that.
Michael: Hardly the quality you need to head a company like jcv.
Lauren: Sally was good at her job, and in time, she would have been great. She had vision and she had a plan to implement it, and i just — I cannot believe I had to fire her.
Michael: Hey, hey. I think that showed great loyalty to jack.
Lauren: Yeah, and his eyes are open to her. He is much better without her. I just wish he could find someone as perfect as you are for me.
Michael: That’s a tall order. I think ours is a once-in-a-lifetime love affair.
Lauren: We are one of a kind, baby. But I still hold out hope that there is a great romance for everyone out there.
Michael: Yeah. I’ll drink to that.
Lauren: [ Chuckles ] Okay.
Phyllis: Did I see ashland locke outside?
Jack: Yeah, he was just saying his goodbyes to harrison. It was pretty rough. He covered very well for harrison’s sake, but… is this what you want me to bring to summer?
Phyllis: It is.
Jack: How do I know this isn’t contraband?
Phyllis: [ Laughs ] You don’T.
Phyllis: Um, will you just take a look at it? I want you to see it.
Jack: Okay. Wow. She’s so tiny. And so beautiful. So are you.
[ Sniffles ]
Phyllis: Thank you. Um…summer is very lucky to have a future father-in-law who loves her almost as much as i do.
Jack: I will happily deliver this to her along with all of your love.
Phyllis: Oh, I worry about here. She’s gonna be okay, isn’t she?
Jack: Absolutely. She has a bright future ahead of her with the love of her life, and that’s something you never take for granted.
Chloe: We’re back.
Adam: Don’t worry. Rey’s gone, coast is clear. Hey, uh, there’s a stack of luggage by the break room. You know anything about that?
Sally: That’s mine. I’m moving out of the grand phoenix, and I just needed a place to stash them.
Adam: Did phyllis give you the heave-ho or something?
Sally: She did, yeah, but, actually, I think she did me a favor.
Adam: Why? Because it’s too tense seeing her there all the time.
Sally: No, but she just charges way too much for that dump. Don’t worry, the suitcases will be gone by the end of the day, promise.
Chloe: So, rey — is everything okay?
Adam: It was actually about mariah. Apparently, she might be missing.
Chloe: Oh, my god, I hope she’s alright.
Adam: Well, I imagine that she’ll turn up soon.
